Out of Office message

If you are unable to access your emails for a length of time you can set up an Out of Office message.

Anyone sending you an email will receive an automatic reply containing your customised message.

When creating an Out of Office message consider the following:

  • Keep messages short and concise.
  • Whenever possible include details of alternative appropriate work colleague(s) that senders could contact in your absence.
  • Do not say that you are away on holiday / out of the country between certain dates.
  • Do not put any personal contact details in messages (home address, home telephone number, etc.).
